Industry Trends

Non Halogenated Flame Retardants Market size was more than $1 billion in 2015 and will grow over 8% from 2016 to 2024. Increasing demand of polymer from automobile and construction industry in BRICS nations coupled with rising concerns over toxicity will drive the market in future.

Polymer is touted to substitute steel in automotive manufacturing process to reduce weight and advance efficiency which may positively influence the non-halogenated flame retardants market share. Polymers are highly inflammable and catch fire due to overheating, electric failure or lighters. Demand supply mismatch for key raw materials including aluminum hydroxide, nitrogen hydroxide and phosphorous may act as a restraint for the market. High demand for aluminum and phosphorous hydroxide from manufacturing industries may hamper the business outlook.

Global non halogenated flame retardants market would experience a significant growth subject to increasing adoption of polymers among automotive industry. Growing adoption of polymers for electronic functions in automotive sector will complement this development. Performance matrix of products are durability, protection, insulation and lower heat and smoke emission are pertinent to the adoption of product.

Use of polymer reduces weight of automobiles by 10% resulting in fuel saving. Additionally, lighter vehicles help to reduce fuel emission levels. Propylene, ABS and other high-performance polymers are used for automotive manufacturing.

Market, By Region

Asia Pacific will witness gains over 8% owing to the large-scale spending in India and China. Presence of manufacturing facilities coupled with fire safety concerns will boost product demand. Large scale automotive production in Latin America will drive the non-halogenated flame retardants market growth.

Rise in average income from developing economies in India and China may favor the packaging and construction industry. In 2015, over 40% of Asia Pacific construction spending was in China which translates to more than USD 1 trillion in revenue. Industry analysis suggests that the global spending on construction exceeded USD 9,000 billion in 2015.

Competitive Market Share

Global non halogenated flame retardants industry share is concentrated with top 4 companies catering to over 30% of the demand. Nabaltec, Albermarle, Israel Chemicals and BASF are key players. Other companies in the business include Clariant, Chemtura, DSM, Italmatch Chemicals, Thor Group, Huber, FRX Polymers and DuPont.

Industry Background

Non halogenated flame retardants market is broadly categorized into metal hydroxides and phosphorus based. There are toxicity concerns surrounding the products belonging to these categories. Companies are forced to reduce the levels of toxic additives as per government regulation. Alternately, retardants that are eco-friendly will experience an increase in demand. They are applied in rubber, textiles and plastics industries out of which the plastic industry is a major end-user.
